I'm currently running an ATI Radeon 64 DDR VIVO on an Asus A7M266 w/ 512MB
DDR SDRAM & XFree86 4.1.0 (Rawhide packages) + CVS radeon kernel module.
If I try to load XFree86 w/ radeon + agpgart the system locks up and gives
me a messed up screen (close to the requested 1280x1024). The system
is completely frozen. Keyboard LEDs do not work and kernel doesn't respond
to ping packets. I find that if I do the following:
The card will work the first time I do this. If I try to load XFree86 again
the system locks up. I've tried changing the BIOs parameters to AGP 2x,
no fast/write, etc.. No help.
If I run the card w/ the "vesa" driver, everything works fine, albeit very slowly. The system seems completely stable in Windows 2000 running 3D apps.
Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
